What ethnicity are Canadians?

I've ALWAYS wanted to live in Ottawa, Canada. And just out of curiosity, what is the main ethnicity there?(Ex: French, etc) Are there many mixed people? I have several ethicities, and I was just wondering if it would be a problem for me? LOL.

I'm Irish/Scottish (haha I know! Best of the worst I say! ) but I'm in Alberta and being a Conservative redneck you probably won't catch me dead in Quebec.

Montreal I heard is a supremely ignorant city. Ottawa, from what I understand, has a lot of mixed ethnicities (have heard they keep their own niche's for living in the city) but is very welcoming and a really fun place.
I do know it is french/english whereas Montreal is french.

But, that is my second hand hearsay. First hand hearsay is that Alberta is best.

There's an equality between French and English speaking Ottawains. A lot of us can speak both (I don't). So as long as you speak one you should be fine!

I thought so at first too but I think she was really referring to Quebec and how inter-racial it is. I think.

Canada is known to be a melting pot of people...

Just like other places, we have caucasian, African-Canadian, Asians, Native Americans, East Indians, Europeans, etc etc, plus whatever mixed races that have occured over time.
